What would actual heterodox academia look like? I mean, if it wasn't just an excuse to build Fasc-U? What ideas in our academic culture are actually marginalized without evidence of their badness? Would love to hear ideas from your field of expertise...

More specifically, there'd be more focus on human comprehension and thought, rather than the kind of mathematical elegance I like putting in programming languages.
